Read and refer to Hot Text, chap 7: Links. Work with a selected or assigned web article from the list below. You can do this on paper. Be ready to hand in notes and paragraphs on Tuesday, however.

First, make some notes on what kind of article it is, and consider its audience fit (Hot Text), and audience niche.

For each link, make notes on
How the link text is handled
What the link doing: the relationship of link context to target. Take your cues from the source, but also from the target and its context. Some possibles. There are others.
From your list of notes, draft a couple of paragraphs in which you characterize how this article incorporates and uses links. No judgements: We're looking for a consideration of how the writer manages and uses links to other sources in the article: be neutral, fair, complete.
